#LoveYourLines Encourages Women to Embrace Their Stretch Marks
Women love to hate their stretch marks, but now there's a viral campaign that's encouraging women to show them off. Love Your Lines is more than an Instagram account or a hashtag; it's a global initiative for women to come together in an effort to embrace the beauty of their stretch marks and not be embarrassed to let them show. Gorgeous supermodel Chrissy Teigen has already showed off her own marks, and now Sports Illustrated model Robyn Lawley proudly speaks about her lines, calling them "tiger stripes."
In a powerful Facebook post, Robyn explained why she felt the need to speak out about her stretch marks. "We put an unbelievable amount of ridiculous time-consuming pressure on women to care so much about their flaws they forget how truly beautiful they (you) are today." She added, "F*ck them, who cares, be you, be loud, be proud. And put your efforts into skills that rely more on your physical self." The mom to 7-month-old daughter Ripley also encouraged other women, especially mothers, to celebrate their bodies. "To anyone who feels bad about your body especially after a baby, you are a warrior," she announced. "You created a life inside of you, that's no easy feat."
We love that strong women like Chrissy and Robyn are sharing the imperfections that make them beautiful, and we are celebrating the positive message this viral campaign is spreading. Check out some of the ways women are showing love for their lines.
